Happy Wednesday! Today the Inspired Prompt welcomes author, Judythe Morgan. We’re so happy you could join us. First question:
Can you describe yourself in three words?
Judythe: Eclectic: Years ago, one of my husband’s business associates told him he had quite an eclectic wife. I wasn’t sure whether to be flattered or insulted. I looked it up and decided I am indeed eclectic. I like to select what seems best to me from various styles, doctrines, ideas, and methods.
Resourceful: My resourcefulness stems from being eclectic. I have a wealth of knowledge floating around in my head that helps me deal with new situations or difficulties.
Imaginative: A creative imagination is the mainstay of most authors. Mine sometimes works overtime.
Yes, wonderful qualities for a writer 🙂 Now about travel…
Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?
Judythe: My first thought was to return to Ireland and drink in the raw beauty, relish the culture, and visit friends I’ve made on previous visits. I always recharge my imagination there. Then I gave a second thought and Scotland came to mind. I’ve traveled in Scotland too, and I’d love to wander beyond the typical tourist places. Maybe add a Scottish bur to my Irish brogue. Of course, wherever I went I’d love the adventure and feed my writer’s imagination.
I would imagine Scotland and Ireland are both breathtaking around the holidays! Last question:
If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?
Judythe: This was the hardest question for me, even though I live in a very musical family. We have oboists, pianists, singers, composers, and hummers. We have piano teachers and music teachers. We know a gazillion songs. Still, this question was tough for me. I asked for suggestions. And, what fun that was collecting the different ideas. Interestingly, many of the suggested songs involved travel. I have moved around and traveled a lot. There were also many hymns and Christian songs suggested. My faith does guide my life. After much reflection, I narrowed my choices to two. One reflects how my life has played out – The Happy Wanderer. I’ve loved all the places I’ve lived, the people I’ve met, and the lifelong friends I discovered along the way. The other, I consider the underpinning of life – His Eye is On the Sparrow. I do know who’s in control of my life and I’m so thankful He watches over me.
What great song selections. Thanks so much for dropping by!
